John Kerry (aka Lurch) is fading from Drudge

New Poll: Kerry Would Lose To Bush Last Poll Showed Senator With Commanding Lead

POSTED: 6:48 a.m. EDT May 21, 2003

BOSTON -- The presidential campaign of Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry received some startling news Wednesday from his own back yard.

A poll recently conducted by the research institute Mass Insight shows Kerry trailing President Bush in the race for president in the Bay State.

The poll, which involved 500 Massachusetts voters at the end of April, shows the president with a 6 percentage point lead -- the exact numbers have not been released.

This stands in stark contrast to a similar poll taken by the group in January. Back then, Kerry had a commanding 16 point lead in Massachusetts in a theoretical matchup with the president.

The Irish and and Jews looked at eachother and shruged "Who can we count on him pandering to?" and walked away from the pollster.

Kerry might be the best pick for the GOP after Dizzy Dean. Kerry tried to be on both sides of the Iraq War and wants to be a Vietnam War hero even though he pretended to throw his medals away and opposed that war. His speaking style is so boring and convoluted it's hard to tell what he's saying. Bottom line is another Massachsetts liberal is going to be a no-sale in most of the country.

Blowed-dried buffoon...Kerry has the role of the sleazy politician down pat.

He reminds me of that Senator in the movie "The Last Boy Scout."

Usually in Massachusetts when a Senator gets in serious trouble he starts wearing a neck brace.

I think I heard somewhere that he was in Vietnam. Can't be sure, but he may have mentioned it recently in a speech. About a hundred times.

I refuse to believe that he pays hundreds of dollars for that monstrosity of a hair style. I bet he gets it cut at Wal-Mart and pockets the change for the expensive cut.

Yes, Kerry was in Vietnam...what he DOESN'T tell you, however, was that Kerry, during the Vietnam demonstrations of the 70s, took his medals and threw them over the White House fence in protest. It frosts my cookies when I hear Kerry talk about being a Vietnam vet when he did everything possible to stomp on his image of being there. I saw it on the black and white at the time...I remember how odd it was that a soldier would throw his medals away after he fought for the meaning of them...Kerry was pandering to the protestors at that time....NOT fighting for the soldiers.

No doubt. Originally I thought this God Forsaken State of Mass would be the one place to keep Bush from winning every state in the Union.

A tidy clean sweep would be sweet.

"I think I heard somewhere that he was in Vietnam. Can't be sure, but he may have mentioned it recently in a speech. About a hundred times."

...PER SPEECH That's supposed to make us forget the phony medal-throwing incident, and his rabid hatred of his fellow Vietnam vets (except the ones who ALSO hate their fellow Vietnam vets of course)

...and said, "We're not claiming him! You take him!"

Seriously, though, as much as I like the results, a poll this early out is rather meaningless.

They belonged to a friend of his, supposedly. Wouldnt doubt that the "friend" is a myth and that he bought them in a pawn shop or Army/Navy store prior to the demonstration. He was also (probably) betting that the act would get him laid with some strung out hippiechick.

True enough, Bush's standing in MA from January to now reflects the Iraq war victory, and we all know how fleeting that is. The importance of this poll is that the other Rats can go after ketchup boy based on electability. That's been his biggest stick to use against the also-rans, this poll breaks it into toothpicks. If Rat money goes into a dozen different campaign coffers, its good for us.

RE: Medals

Per the Honorable Bob Dornan, who was physically there at the time of the incident and recited this story at a recent DC Patriot's Rally, what Kerry claims he threw away and the medals he actually did toss are two completely different things:

Katsup Kerry claims he threw away his medal of valor/purple heart (not sure exactly which); anyway - irreplaceable or at least would have been embarrasing to try to replace after such a tantrum. What he actually threw (into the pond, I recall) were some common lower echelon medals that are easily replaced from any military PX, such as marksmanship, time of service ribbons, theatre of duty, etc.

O-U-T with the flaming hypocrite!

This story has one important significance -- it says that the voters who know him best -- who know more about him than the limited, cropped and staged image of Kerry being sold to the Dems and press nationally -- well, those Massachusetts voters aren't so fond of him.

Whereas a more "genuine" candidate would normally be expected to get a 'favorite son' bounce from his home state, and from border state New Hampshire as well.

This does NOT bode well for Kerry.

The 'war hero' crap doesn't fly with the Massachusetts voters, because they know differently, and I'm sure they were also surprised that Kerry neglected to remember that he wasn't Irish, after all these years when he let the perception lay that he was Irish.

Not that they ever needed him to be Irish, but they did require him to be truthful about who he was.

And his campaign has put the spotlight on the reality that he's a "male whore", a gold-digger.

AT this point he should consider himself lucky that he's not up for re-election to the senate.

Bottom line is another Massachsetts liberal is going to be a no-sale in most of the country.

If his poll numbers in the northeast go further south, he could end up being the first presidential candidate to win no states in the Electoral College. Even Fritz Mondale was able (just barely) to win his home state of Minnesota in 1984, and McGovern carried Massechussetts in 1972. What's really needed is Republican pickups in the House, but especially the Senate to go along with an historic Electoral College route.

Remember that Ronald Reagan won Massachusetts in both 1980 and 1984. Massachusetts will elect a Republican if there is a Republican candidate to be excited about. Hell, we've been electing Republican governors here since 1990. Republican Mitt Romney was elected governor by a wide margin here last November. No reason why Bush can't take this state in 2004.
